Get up close and personal with wolves on any number of different tours. We recommend the feeding tour, where guides feed the wolves so that they come right up to the edge of the pasture-style enclosures. Howl with the wolves at tour's end and feel like you've joined the pack. A must-do for lovers of wildlife.

Located in the northeast section of the County near Calhan with approximately 750 acres. The paint mines have evidence of human life as far back as 9,000 years ago. The colorful clays were used by Native Americans. The park features fantastic geological formations including spires and hoodoos that were formed through erosive action that created incised gullies and exposed layers of seienite clay and jasper. The park includes a restroom facility, four miles of trails, interpretive signage, and many natural wonders.
